After some minor adjustments up front (lengthing castor rods to meet and torquing all bushings, crossmember & subframe mounts)

It can finally be called rolling. Needs a wheel allignment of course hah

Then pissed around at night time adding timer to dash, used old brake shield for brackets

(yes I cut the hole too big and used the cutout pva'd to the back of it to fill gap.. But I don't care about this stuff)

Yeh but when you start clutch kicking 3rd that'll change.

Procter thought he could get away but only lasted 1 session.

 

That said it's different for everyone, just be prepared.

LOL Why do you go to all the effort of commenting when it's pointless

 

Because I removed 25kg of deadener was my reason... Wheel arches I can do at any time and don't see myself ever doing it

Get mad :humpleg:

why did you go to all the effort to remove the sound deadening but left it on the wheel arches?

seems pointless

 

Since when has 'form over function' been a case for something being pointless :blink: .

 

Removing the wheel arch sound deadener is mostly for aesthetics, and clearly that isn't the highest thing on his priority list. You would do it on a Time Attack car, but even then, you gain almost nothing for the time you invest. On the other hand, removing the floorpan sound deadener nets a small weight reduction, easier painting, more durable finish, easier cleaning and makes it easier to install a cage.

 

I can understand why he left it there.

Looking awesome dude! I'm buying a 180 shell in the next week or so and I'm contemplating stripping the sound deadener and painting it. Are you planning on running a full interior?

My best advise it buy some thinners to pour on it, it really weakens the glue.

Then just have a lot of patience, it only takes about 2 days of all-day to get it done I just did in section for 15 mins lol

 

Nah fully bare, not even the dash - just dash bar with stuff on it (avcr, boost etc)

 

and cheers man I'm off to buy some plexi right now to make a windscreen and quarters, and the rear hatch

If you're only running dash bar and plan on going to qr you will need to have padding on it
